We study the influence of water and land resource constraints on the growth rate of agricultural output in the Yellow River Basin using the damping effect research method with 15 years of panel data from 2004 to 2018, and calculate the damping effect of water resources and land resources in the Yellow River Basin as 2.76% and 12.19% respectively. The results show that through the study of the provinces in the Yellow River Basin, the results show that the damping effect of water and land resources have significant variability in each province, and the damping effect of water resources is significantly negative in the upper reaches of the Yellow River, while it is significantly positive in the middle and lower reaches; and The damping effect of land resources is significantly positive only in Qinghai, Inner Mongolia, and the middle and upper reaches of Shanxi. In order to balance resource constraints with the stable growth of agricultural production, the quality of water and land resources should be improved and the utilization rate of resources should be improved.
